U.S.-based global air freight giant FedEx announced July 31 the launch of six flights weekly between Miami, Medellin and Bogota.

The new service aims to grab a share of the six million pounds of perishables shipped via air-freight every day from Colombia to Miami, including flowers, fish, fruits, vegetables and coffee, according to the company.

“The new B-767 flight will facilitate the arrival of Colombian products to the U.S. via the installation of ‘Gateway’ in Miami and will open new markets for Colombian companies,” according to FedEx.

“FedEx has been present in Colombia for more than 25 years, with operations in the 12 main cities throughout the country,” added FedEx Express Latin America president Juan Cento.

“Adding capacity and a more direct connection with Miami will give Colombian companies a greater competitive advantage to reach markets and customers worldwide. In addition, it will also help boost the local economy in the two largest cities in Colombia, which are central hubs for some of the most important perishable goods in the country, including flowers,” he said.

New export facilities at Medellín’s Jose Maria Cordoba (JMC) international aiport now offer convenient cold-storage capacities and storage space for perishable cargo, the company noted.
